I’m taking part in Shine Night Walk to help beat cancer

Just before Christmas in 2016 I was diagnosed with lobular breast cancer.....5 days later, whilst discussing ivf options with a consultant I found out I was pregnant! Whilst exciting, this came with its own challenges.... my cancer was hormone receptive so not only did the pregnancy mean that I couldn’t have some of the diagnostic tests to check the extent of my cancer, it also could potentially worsen my cancer. As future drug therapy would render me infertile, and as I’d already suffered a miscarriage 6 months earlier, termination wasn’t an option. On January 13th 2017 i had a mastectomy and then put all other treatment on hold until I’d given birth to a baby boy. I’m one of the lucky ones..... Im going to honest....i occasionally whinge about the side effects of my drug therapy, but Finn has just had his first birthday and I’m able to cuddle him every morning when he wakes up and kiss him every night when he goes to sleep, not everyone is that fortunate.

Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there.

Only with our continued support can they turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
